      Your Skin Prescription

      Our bodies take a beating during the winter months thanks to harsh environmental elements like dry air and excess heat, constant hand washing and moisture sapping soaps. We want you to emerge from the coldest of seasons with smooth, healthy and radiant skin. (more…)

      Cold and Flu Season is Here

      Monday, October 22nd, 2007

      With the weather changing and becoming colder, we are susceptible to catching a cold or the flu. There are a couple of items that you can keep in your medicine cabinet to assist with fighting the winter blues…

      J.R. Watkins Apothercary Menthol Camphor Ointment
      This cooling, soothing product has been making people feel better for more than 85 years. It helps relieve that stuffed-up, congested feeling of a chest cold and suppress the accompanying cough. Also provides temporary relief from aching muscles as well as sunburn, windburn and minor burns and scapes.

      Kiss My Face Cold & Flu Bath
      You don’t need to have a cold to be able to enjoy this popular pick-me-up and all-around soother. This Cold and Flu Bath and Shower Gel is the perfect day-starter or antidote for those under-the-weather blues. Created with time-tested botanicals like Eucalyptus, Fennel, Horehound and other aromatics and soothes skin with Olive Oil, Aloe Vera, and Allantoin.

      Rocky Mountain Soap Company Cold & Flu Bath Salts
      Made from the finest essential oils, this bath soak eases the symptoms of a Cold & Flu. Eliminates chills, boosts immunity, eases stress and tension, opens airways, helps improve respiration and calm coughs.

      Don’t let this winter put you to bed.

      I love travel size products. They are perfect for weekend getaways, popping in your purse or simply to sample something new to you.

      The J.R. Watkins Apothecary Sampler Kit, contains eight cute little pots and bottles, made with all natural ingredients and encased in a handy zip pouch.

      As I knew little about Watkins, I took a peep at their website to learn more. Watkins have been in business for almost 140 years! That is amazing. They carry more than just high quality bath and body items but Home Remedies, Home Care, and Gourmet Pantry products. From 100% Organic Spices to Aloe Pain Relief Burn Cream to Lavender Bath Salts.

      I have several favourites from this kit: I carry the Aloe & Green Tea Hand & Body Lotion in my handbag and appreciate its clean fresh smell. This lotion soaks in quickly, leaving my hands soft. At night I have been applying the Hand & Cuticle Salve which has really improved the condition of my cuticles. My husband loves the Peppermint Foot Cream as it soothes his tired feet at the end of the work day.
